NEW PROJECT AT OUR ENTRANCE
So, we have all been thinking that the trailers up front and the
clearing of the trees on the property adjacent to the subdivision has
been the Olathe school district. Well, it's not, it is the water
company. They are laying new lines and are the ones doing the work. The
school district has not started any work yet so if you have any issues
such as the trailers, traffic, or anything else you should contact Water
The district is going to contact us with what further info they can find
out for us.
PERSIMMON POOLS INFORMATION
So, there has been some confusion about the pools and who can be there
without adult supervision. Anyone under 18 must have an adult
supervising them. Also anyone who is in the pool area or pool must be a
resident and must have their pool key. Asking residents inside the pool
to let people in because they "forgot" their key is not acceptable.
Please don't let them in! If they have a complaint about
that have them contact a board member. If residents lose their key they
can obtain another one from Susan Alewine. Her number is on the website.
Having a key to get in is for residents' safety as well as to control
who uses our pools that we pay dues to maintain.
Each resident over 18 may have one guest who does not have to be a
resident. After some research it came to my attention that the pool
signs at the Overlook pool and the Canyon pool were not correct. I made
a temporary correction to the signs for the time being. Hopefully we
will have new signs soon.
Unfortunately we have been having quite a bit of trouble/complaints
at/about the pools this summer. Vandalism inside the pool areas and out,
inappropriate behavior and language, yelling at all hours, and teenagers
not leaving when asked, so the police also having to be called. Even
though our pools are neighborhood pools, they are still not considered
private. In other words, if it's a pool that's not in your own backyard,
there are certain expected behaviors that apply.
Any help for the remainder of the summer by our residents would be
School is out for the Summer.
Please drive slowly and watch for children
playing throughout the subdivision.
Persimmon Hill Residents
Due to a recent increase in
auto burglaries around the Olathe area, the Olathe Police Department wants to
remind citizens of ways they can help prevent auto burglaries and other crimes
in their neighborhoods. I have attached a handout on Spring Crime Prevention
that offers many
helpful tips to prevent crimes. With the cold weather, theves are targeting cars
that are idling and warming up in residential driveways. Please pass this handout on to your
neighborhoods and homes associations,
through your newsletters, email trees, and/or
websites. If you have any questions or would like more information, please
